Do you have time through the week to support adults at key times of vulnerability and need? Do you have an interest or passion to speak out for vulnerable people and ensure their views are heard? Would you like to learn new skills, enjoy ongoing training and support? Short-term advocates come into contact with the health and social care system in Fife, as well as a variety of professionals and gain valuable experience of supporting a person.
Advocacy support can involve attending formal or informal meetings, helping to make a complaint, contacting existing or new services or giving support with navigating through the benefits system. This project works with vulnerable people with learning disabilities or autism, mental ill-health, physical disabilities or chronic ill-health in the West Fife Community when there. is a more immediate issue to address and the partnership will usually end when this is resolved. Volunteers will be matched on a one-to-one basis to support local, vulnerable adults with issue-based advocacy. Often people who are problem solvers, enjoy Short-Term Advocacy.
